Highlights from Colour My World at NGA

Paul Costigan 19 April 2016

The National Gallery of Australia (NGA) has launched an exhibition that should appeal to many – in particular those with an interest in Australian hand-coloured photography from the last couple of decades. Besides hand coloured black and white photographs with themes from personal, landscape to political subjects, Colour My World has some works by photographers and artists who use collage as well as hand colouring.

The exhibition is upstairs in one of the special project galleries and contains enough work to engage you for at least half an hour. I enjoyed seeing works that I had not seen for a while plus a couple by photographers I know well, such as Robyn Stacey and Janina Green. The curator has done a great job of exhibiting the works. It is quite a beautiful show. This is an exhibition for the lovers of photography, such as me! I will be back for another look.

Here are a few of my photographs of the exhibition.






And when you have finished upstairs, there is a small exhibition on black and white landscape photography on the floor below towards the front.

What: Colour My World exhibition
